Finding The Perfect Mother of the Bride Outfit

Capture1-177x300Finding the perfect dress for any occasion often proves to be a challenge; this is no different when looking for a mother of the bride or groom dress. In fact, if you ask me, it can be much more difficult. With so many dress styles and colors to choose from, it still seems like nothing ever fits the way it should, or looks the way it should, for that matter.


The way a dress or even suit looks on the hanger doesn’t always translate when put on. As a dressmaker, I have seen countless dresses and outfits that the MOB or MOG have brought to me for alterations. Sadly, I have encountered far too many women who are beyond miserable with their dress. Speaking as a woman, this is just not fun; when I am wearing a dress, I want to look and feel my best, especially at my son or daughter’s wedding.


While you could spend endless hours searching for the “perfect dress”, why not have a custom dress, gown or suit made just for you? After all, a piece designed specifically for you will surely be all that you have dreamed of. Whether you want a tea length dress, which is popular among many MOBs, a long gown, or even a skirt and jacket, wearing what makes you feel good, will make your son or daughter happy as well.


While the wedding is about the bride and groom, don’t forget to make sure you are satisfied, scratch that, overjoyed with your outfit choice, and the upcoming nuptials!


Good luck finding a dress, and if that doesn’t work, have one made specifically for you, highlighting your personality, style, and best assets!
